Dear God, is it really 20 years since this forgotten gem was released? Back then, this seemed to be the sound of things to come (at least in Scotland, anyway). Great songs primarily, with witty, wordy lyrics, great upbeat tunes and a stomping beat. Uniquely Scottish too, with its combination of dry, self-deprecating wit, the hint of slightly bitter world weariness (at age of - what? - all of 24?), the feeling that there are better time around the corner...for others, at least ('only my dreams satisfy the needs of my heart'...)
The contrast between the irrestible tunes and the offbeat, sometimes melancholic but always intelligent lyrics was at the heart of the Orange Juice (and Edwyn Collins) experience, and probably the reason why he's never received the plaudits and commercial success his talent deserves. He's recorded good stuff since, but this was his first (and perhaps best) thing to get a major label release. Should you come across this in a second hand bin......don't even think twice, pick it up immediately.

Hewn from a rough mix of punk and motown, all jangling guitars and out of tune vocals, when I first heard this album on vinyl in the year of it's release it changed my life. Perfect raw pop music with a twist, they never matched this debut and I'm not sure anyone esle has either!

The broader aspects of the career of Orange Juice - one of the most important indie acts of the early 80's pop scene - can be found on the recent retrospective compilation, The Glasgow School. By the time this album appeared, the band had already been together for half a decade and had released a handful of singles on the legendary Postcard label, before attempting to cut a more lo-fi debut in the form of Ostrich Churchyard, eventually released posthumously in 1992. The band scraped that garage-rock recording and decided to re-record a debut that drew more on sparking soul and pop inflections, set against the more traditional indie-style guitar sound. The result was You Can't Hide Your Love Forever... one of the best and most underrated pop albums of the 1980's.
The overall sound has certain similarities with acts like Dexys Midnight Runners and The Style Council, with the integration of soulful horns and keyboard rhythms working in harmony alongside the more traditional guitars, drums and bass. However, at the same time, it also has a lot in common with The Smiths, with certain tracks predating the jazzy guitar pop sound of Smiths' classics like Ask, The Boy With The Thorn In His Side and The Cemetery Gates. Singer and main songwriter Edwyn Collins was launching his dairy to music long before Morrissey decided to ruminate on hands in gloves and suffering little children, with the lyrical subject matter sharing that knowing, self-deprecating style that looked at the foibles of young love, directionless youth and the Scottish hipster scene of the late 70's and early 80's.

Don't buy this expensive import - it is coming out in early 2010, released by Domino.

Finally they have seen sense and chosen to re-release this classic album in the UK.

So wait a couple of months and it'll be out at a realistic price for all.

Hurrah!

Fully agree with the comments below. This is the toppermost of the poppermost. The production was/is a little lumpy, but the songs are so strong, soulful and full of wit. Edwyn's vocals are uniquely heartfelt. And the guitar of James Kirk, not Malcom Ross, is twangingly fantatsic. They could have been / should have been bigger than The Beatles. Or The Archies at least.
This should be played on every station from May until September.

Well deserving of top marks, as fresh today as when it was released, I did take a gamble with this purchase has they seem to have passed me by and I could not remember them, but listening to reviews I bought it and I was so glad I did.
Full of energy but well polished.
Go for it, Deano.

I've been interested in Edwyn Collins' music for decades, although recently I've been interested in his previous bands outfit, and this album is exceptional. Many of the songs, the tracks are funky, and I like the record cover too, and Edwyn's voice is distinctive too.
